Proficiency in Survival Craft

  • Length5 Days

Course Description

The attendees’ knowledge of seamanship and the ability to carry out effectively all the duties that may be required to launch and take charge of a survival craft or rescue boat is achieved through a series of lessons, demonstrations, training videos and practical exercises using the working davit, lifeboat and other lifesaving equipment.

The course will provide attendees with the opportunity to observe, practice and experience the application of taking charge of and operating a survival craft. Although assessments will be conducted using real working lifesaving appliances, the additional use of simulation will expose attendees to experience and deal with emergency situations which for safety purposes cannot be achieved by using actual survival craft. 

What You Will Learn

At the end of this course, attendees will enhance their experience in terms of proficiency in survival craft and rescue boats other than fast rescue boats. The curriculum presented meets, and in many cases exceeds, the requirements established by federal regulation and the domestic implementation of STCW Code, 2010 as amended.
